Work Step by Step

We first translate this statement into an algebraic expression. Let us look at the statement and then break it down into its component parts: "Seven subtracted from" means to subtract $7$ from something. "The product of five and four more than a number" means we will multiply $5$ and $x + 4$. If we put together our components, we get: $$5(x + 4) - 7$$
